about

"Permanence." Is the debut studio album of Vancouver BC's queer garage rockers, Strange Breed.
Touching on social and political issues such as gender discrimination, mental illness, coming out/LGBTQ+ visibility, sexual assault and #MeToo to name a few, "Permanence." is reminiscent of the feminist anthems of early 90's femme rock all while keeping a firm grip on the modern rock sound of today.

We are here. We are who we are. Change is happening, and it's here to stay.

Track Name: 25
If you wanna kill for fun, let me be the first martyr
If you wanna hurt someone, take a stab at where my heart is
If you wanna win the crown, you're gonna have to get smarter
If you wanna take me out
You're gonna have to try (x3)
You're gonna have to try harder

Shock me from the sugar, take me for a better woman
I am not!
Trace me from my ankles, overhead and underlined
25, It took me 25 years to wanna stay alive

Quiet now
It's not hard to bleed my mind
Of all the trust

If you wanna pour some more, that would be the nicest armour
If you wanna weather the storm
Then I will be the one to guide you, take my rage push it inside you
I would watch what you say next, I've cut people out for less

Quiet now, It's not hard to bleed my mind (x3)
Of all the trust
Track Name: My Blood
My blood is clean, My mind is not
But I never get caught do I?
My heart of gold, beats alone in this life
And the next and the next one


(Ch) My blood, goes so much deeper than you
Could ever know now that you’ve become
A hardened case, of such distaste
A lonely trigger on a loaded gun

What’s the point in being pure when
Being dirty’s more fun?
Drink your water, drink your wine or
You could scratch and bite and drink...

(Chorus)


If you wanna waste your time or
Waste away, the pleasure’s mine

Track Name: Dead Girl
I love your sentiment for no one but yourself
I love your ignorance so pretty wrapped in white
I share a word or two on my opinions of the world
You flip your hair and ask me if I have the stats on that

(Chorus) You don't think that we exist!
You think opinions like yours, aren't really hatred
Take one spin around the sun!
You bittersweet pretender, you'd silence anyone!

The most beautiful girl is a dead girl motionless in black
21 years to freedom lying on her back
I love your sentiment for no one but yourself
You'd fucking hate us but no more than you fucking hate yourself

(Chorus) You don't think that we exist!
You think opinions like yours, aren't really hatred
Take one spin around the sun!
You bittersweet pretender, you'd silence anyone!

(instrumental)

(Chorus) You don't think that we exist!
You think opinions like yours, aren't really hatred
Take one spin around the sun!
You bittersweet pretender, you'd silence anyone!

I don’t care if you’re a man
I don’t care if you’re a woman
I don’t care if you are neither
Consent is cool!
I don’t care what your mama taught you
Don’t care what your daddy taught you
Don’t care what your douchebag friends said
Consent is cool!

I don’t care if you’re my ex
Don’t care if you want sex
Don’t care if I was drunk
Consent is cool!
I don’t care if you are Carrie
I don’t care if you’re Samantha
Don’t care if you’re Mr. Big!
Consent is cool!

Why can’t you just get it yet? (X2)

Track Name: Closer
I think I’m closer to God
More than I’ve ever been
But even when he’s at my door I’d never, let him in
I think I’m closer to you
More than I’ve ever been
But even when you’re at my door I won’t, confess my sins

I, I, I
I, I, I
I, I....

I think I’m closer to you!
I think I’m closer to you (x 2)

I hear you knocking, at my door
I’ve been tied up for days, restraints on my heart
And I want real love, but it’s unrequited
Every time I open up I just find my legs, parted.

I think I’m closer to you!
I think I’m closer to you (x2)

I, I, I
I, I, I
I, I....
I think I’m closer to you.

I think I’m closer than I’ve ever been, I think I’m closer than I’ve ever been
Ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and... (x 2)

I think I’m closer to you!
I think I’m closer to you (x 2)
Track Name: Sharks
You can bend until you break, you won’t get away
He won’t turn a blind eye to girls like you, babe

There’s a shark in the water, he smells your daughters
And he’ll get, he’ll get, what he wants

If you try to get away he won’t hesitate
To bite your limbs off and leave you sinking
I’ll call the coast guard on you, I swear to god I’ll fucking do it
We can do it
If we all work together

There’s a shark in the water, he smells your daughters
And he’ll get, he’ll get, what he wants

We can see you coming from a million miles (there you are!)
You leave a filthy trail behind your eyeline
I never thought that it would go this far
Not in this day and age but look where we are

There’s a shark in the water, he got caught and now he's fucking scared
And he’ll get, he’ll get, what he deserves!

And we’ve got sharks in danger, sharks in danger, sharks in danger (x2)

You can bend until you break, you won’t get away
He won’t turn a blind eye to girls like you babe.
Track Name: Witch Hunt
What do you stand for, what do you believe?
Who do you pray to on your knees?
Will I drown in your rivers deep? Or will I burn like your barren trees?

Am I controversial? Am I over educated?
Starved and exasperated, until I'm not opinionated.

(Pre) Am I seeing things? Can I Hide?
Witch! Hunt! I think, Not!

(Instrumental Chorus)

Who do you prey on and who do you please?
Why do you live so carelessly?
What's your weakness, your disease?
You'll feel this anguish for centuries

(Pre) Am I seeing things? Can I Hide?
Witch! Hunt! I think, Not!

(Instrumental Chorus)

What do you stand for, what do you believe?
Track Name: Her
I'd entertain her, masturbate to her
I'd spill my guts to her, take her picture
I'd change my name for her, crash my car for her
Drink alone with her
I'd shut up for her to be heard

(CH 1) She could bend me, she could give it up
She'd never let me
But she could never read my mind

Her eyes are open, mouth too big to shut
Door is closing, sheets lay untucked
Breath is changing, words are tough to judge
She keeps me waiting, she keeps me waiting

(CH2) And she could bend me, she could give it up
She'd never let me
But she could never read my mind
If she could trust me, If I could make this mine
Then I could love her, It might've been fine
Might've been, might've been fine
Might've been, might've been fine
